Health & Wellness Center
The Health and Wellness Center provides medical and mental health services to all full-time traditional undergraduate students (TUGS) enrolled in the university. The HWC staff works as an integrated treatment team to provide quality care. While medical and counseling information is confidential the staff may at times discuss aspects of care with other members of the treatment team in order to provide the highest quality of services. In an emergency situation, the HWC staff may refer you to another clinician or hospital; vital information may be shared with these health care providers. It is not necessary to have Queens student health insurance to use the HWC. While most services are free of charge, any costs incurred can be paid at the time of service or billed to the student account.
